  1. Apply same rules as desktop app

    I set rules in outlook on my PC (for example email notifications to move to a particular folder). When I check my emails from the mobile app, the rules I have created don’t apply until I log in from my PC. I would like all rules I created from desktop app to apply on the mobile app automatically.

  2. Smart suggestion for moving email to folders

    The only reason Outlook is now not my first choice of app is like many people I sort my emails into folders. Another app I use, Spark actually learns what folder you move messages into then suggesting the folder saving time scrolling down through tons of folders. Add that feature and Outlook will rule the world!

  3. Ability to hide message previews

    Forcing us to view message previews in a folder takes away from valuable smart phone screen real estate. Please give us the option to enable or disable message previews in all folders, especially the inbox.

  4. Unread email

    I have email rules which mean that unread emails go directly into a folder. There should be an ‘unread email’ feature from all folders not just the inbox

  6. Time zone support

    One major issue holding me back from using Outlook Calendar full on is the missing time zone support - in IOS native calendar it’s easy to search for a country or city and select time zone. Please please please

  8. Sync with iOS calendar

    I’ve always had a Hotmail account. When I would accept an event, it would show up on my iOS calendar that came with iPhone. Since I downloaded your app, things are easier, BUT half of my calendar items are on iOS and and all accepted email events now show up on outlooks calendar. I don’t like yours and am used to iOS.

  9. Pinch to zoom on the opening screen

    Would you consider adding a pinch to zoom to n the opening screen similar to the function once an ema message has been opened. I am visually impaired and it would help to be able to zoom to view the list of new / existing email messages.

    Thank you!

  16. Add “always BCC”

    It would be great to have a feature that would allow you to always add yourself as a BCC on emails sent.
